In light of the recent news about the possibility of the old TB vaccine helping with coronavirus


Thank you Soviet medicine.

Legend: red - not used, blue - used in the past, yellow - in use. Mandatory for Soviet, and now Russian infants since forever.
I wonder if we used something different. I remember being vaccinated for tb, but it had to have been in the 60s.

@bijouxbroussard Some people are vaccinated with the BCG vaccine even in the states, but only in rare and select circumstances.

You might be thinking of a TB [i]test[/i].
@QuixoticSoul You’re right, I looked it up, based on what I remember it was probably the the tine test,

@bijouxbroussard That test got me X-rayed during immigration proceedings - it’s always positive in those vaccinated 😂
